Educational Psychology, Ph.D.

About the Educational Psychology Graduate Program

Students enrolled in the educational psychology program earn a M.Ed. or a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology. For the Ph.D., students select one of three tracks in school psychology; quantitative methods; or learning and developmental sciences. Students are required to complete a minimum of 36 semester credit hours for the Master of Education degree. Students pursuing a master’s degree can do so with or without a thesis. Students are required to complete a minimum of 91 semester credit hours beyond the bachelor’s degree for the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Applicants to either the M.Ed. or Ph.D. program must first apply to, and be cleared by, the Graduate School before being reviewed and approved by the educational psychology faculty. Admission to a master’s program does not constitute later admission to a doctoral program. Applicants without a strong background in psychology may be required to complete leveling courses before unconditional admission to the program. See for more information.
